Crestview Key Club Helps Evacuees Displaced by Hurricane Irma

September 25, 2017 | Joey

The vicious category 5 Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida and moved its way through central, south, and southwestern Florida leaving a path of destruction.

Shoal River Middle School is a recognized shelter made for times like this when people have to leave their homes and need a place to stay. When Governor Rick Scott canceled all schools and universities for the Friday and Monday, September  8th and 11th, that the hurricane was going to make landfall, Shoal River immediately filled with evacuees for the weekend.

There was an immense amount of volunteers helping the evacuees but none during the night time. So, the Crestview Key Club and its members volunteered and help the night of September 10th.

From about 9:00 pm Sunday night to 2:00 am Monday morning Key Club members worked all night to get things cleaned up and ready for the morning when people had to go back to their homes down south.

It was an incredible gesture by the Crestview Key Club and the people that they helped will surely never forget.
